DUI Causing Injury Charges in Georgia
Build a Defense with our Atlanta DUI Accident Lawyer
Having an excessive amount of alcohol or drugs in the bloodstream makes it very difficult for people to react quickly and maintain an appropriate level of alertness while driving. Alcohol and drugs also significantly impair a driver’s level of coordination and control.
If you cause an accident while driving under the influence you will not only be arrested for DUI, but you will also be faced with additional penalties for causing an accident. If that accident leads to extensive injury or death, you will face even more severe penalties.
